Kryptonian-magi are Kryptonian born with ability to use magic, a critically endangered humanoid species from the now-destroyed planet Krypton. Del Im-Re is the last of the Kryptonian-magi. Note: Thul-Kar does count as a member but he exist in an questionable state.
History of the Krytonian Magi
The Valley of Juru was a region on the planet Krypton which gave rise to a group of mystics known as the Wizards of Juru. These Kryptonians had learnt the arts of magick and were capable of great acts of sorcery. Even at the height of Kryptonian civilization, the Valley of Juru remained one of the few unexplored regions on the planet. Their "race" ([Kryptonian Magi]) was born within this unexplored region where few suspected of their existence and even fewer believers of their beliefs.
Kryptonian Magi like their Earth counter points Homo Magi ,were Kryptonians born into a Kryptonian sub-race with the ability to use magic as an innate talent instead of studying. The Kryptonian Magi evolved in a parallel but separate line, alongside Kryptonians. The Valley of Juru was a focal point for unharnessed magical energies (Juri magic), and the local Kryptonians evolved into Kryptonian magi as a result of their exposure to these energies. Those Kryptonians who gained these nascent mystic abilities interbred for hundreds of thousands of years, concentrating and strengthening the genetic predisposition.
Kryptonian magi are genetically identical to normal Kryptonians. The mysterious property that makes them Kryptonian magi is somehow "dominant" like a gene, the child of a normal Kryptonian and a Kryptonian magi will 50% of time be Kryptonian magi (unlike with Homo magi) and only 5% of Kryptonian had the magic gene. How and why this trait expresses itself has yet to be recorded, Kryptonian magi are an endangered humanoid alien race originating from the destroyed planet Krypton. Del Im-Re, the wizard Thul-Kar are only survivors of Kryptonian Magi Race.
The Valley of Juru remained one of the few unexplored regions on the planet.Furthermore, its peaks and mists were not capable of being pierced by way of Kryptonian Technology though the mystical arts of the Wizards allowed them to easily bypass such obstacles, only Juri magic allowed their users to find the temple that served as the home for the Wizards of Juru. The Wizards of Juru were an ancient order of Kryptonians that had tapped into the mystic arts and it was claimed that they were the mightiest race on Krypton. It was for this reason that the Wizards remained largely unknown to the rest of the planet. The Wizards of Juru were luddites, they didn't trust technology and new technology.
By Jor El time, The Wizard of Juru lived amongst ordinary men and practiced their rituals largely in secret. As such, as the planet advanced, many were unaware of the existence of the Wizards and believed that their homeworld was ruled by science alone and not by magic.
